5 Best Practices For Sharing Proofs with Internal & External Reviewers

Ease of use is the single most important "feature" within (and throughout) Ziflow. Nowhere is this more important than when it comes to soliciting and collecting feedback. When you consider that all Ziflow accounts come with unlimited reviewers (both internal and external to your organization), it's easy to see how the feedback process could get out of hand.

Product Release Recap - March 2018

It’s release day here at Ziflow! As we’ve covered on the blog before, the first few releases since our October launch were focused on the core online proofing use cases, a well as performance and scalability.

March was a very busy month for the Ziflow product development team. Today’s release includes several new capabilities, each aimed at helping marketing teams deliver their creative projects faster and more efficiently every day. Large, distributed teams, should especially take note of today’s release as we’re making it even easier for agencies and brands to adopt online proofing as a replacement to emails, printouts and sticky-notes as a means of providing feedback on creative content.   

Let’s take a look at a few of the highlights in this month’s release.

Automated Workflow
One of the most frequently requested features since launch, Automated Workflow, delivers a great new addition for teams with multi-stage review processes. If your review and approval process spans multiple teams inside or outside of your organization, you can now create a workflow to automate the proof routing.  

A Common Pitfall to Avoid in Online Proofing

After spending over 10 years building online proofing systems, and even more before that spent building software for marketing teams and agencies, Mat and I have been asked time and again what makes us different from other applications and, even though there’s a lot we can talk about, we always come back to focus and quality.

In this blog post, I’d like to talk about quality, and in particular PDF processing for review and approval. This also applies to other Adobe file formats being processed for review, such as AI and PSD files.

The Ziflow API: Extending Your Marketing Stack with Online Proofing

As we’ve written about before, our aim here at Ziflow is to focus on solving a specific customer problem - the chaotic business process of content review and approval - and doing that better than anyone else. However, that won’t stop us from helping our customers execute more complex processes, of which online proofing is a key component.
